2019 Bernabeleva Vinos de Madrid Camino de Navaherreros Blanco

Madrid, Spain

A unique and delicious mountain wine based on Spain's Abillo grape. Textural, earthy and restrained, a complex wine that evolves wonderfully in the glass.



About The Wine

Marc Isart builds this white blend with his mountain grown old vine Albillo at its core. The Albillo is blended with the estate's younger, field blend plantings of Macabeo, Garnacha Blanca, Malvar and Moscatel, it's a heady mix of varieties but the result is surprisingly pure and restrained.

There is plenty of spice and texture, highlighted by a touch of skins, but there is also the signature racy acidity and purity of high altitude wines. It's silky and supple and then grippy to close.

An extremely characterful wine that will have broad appeal for those interested in whites with a little something extra to give.

About Bernabeleva

Bodegas Bernabeleva (translating to 'where the bear lives') was founded in 1923, when Dr Vicente Álvarez-Villamil acquired the land and planted the vines.

His heirs have taken care of the land for decades now, caring for the 35 hectares of old vines with love and enthusiasm.

They're all about making quality wines full of character, that express the unique environment they come from - all with spectacularly delectable results.

Additional Info

From The Importer

Along with its reds, Bernabeleva is also gaining fame for its wildcard whites, which are based on the enigmatic Albillo grape. Sumptuously textured, earthy, pure, and often slow to unfurl in the glass, these are fantastically unique whites that are completely out-of-step with the prevailing trend for instant gratification.

Blend : Albillo Real (50%), Macabeo (30%), Moscatel de Grano Menudo (15%) and Garnacha Blanca (5%)

Critic Reviews

Wine Advocate

"The village white 2019 Camino de Navaherreros Blanco wants to show San Martín de Valdeiglesias in a simple way through a blend of plots and varieties. 2019 was warm with a warm and dry summer and low yields but less ripeness than in 2017. This is approximately 50% Albillo Real, 30% Macabeo (or Viura), 15% Moscatel de Grano Menudo and 5% Garnacha Blanca with 12.7% alcohol that comes through as floral and fruit-driven, spicy, juicy and pleasant, easy to drink. It has very good freshness and acidity, and though it might not have the depth of the other whites, it's very pleasant. It matured in used oak barrels for nine months."- Luis Gutiérrez (The Wine Advocate)
